HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin

I, and a few of my 944 friends, would easy pay top dollar for a well engineerd way of doing this.

more weight isnt really an issue, its so low, and between wheels.

It's like a skinny nasty girl, vs one with big boobies and nice ass Smile

I think i no what needs to be done as far as design now, and that is a good way to look at it.

Well, its under way. I have removed the rear floor area. Next will be the old trans hump. The C5 will fit i think very well. I have designed the new opening in to a cage set up, for strength. I will keep you all posted as the work cont.

BTW, there is a 928 with the C5 trans doing trackwork. What would be nice is if you could get the trans mount designed to unbolt and slide rearwards (gas tank allowing) to make clutch changes easier...JAT

New convert under way  - Page 4 Empty Modified cross member?

Post  MillsMotorsport on Tue Nov 22, 2011 7:17 am

Hi, do you have any pics of your modified cross member? I'm interested in doing an LS1 conversion to my 924 Turbo, and I'd like to try and understand what work has to be done to the cross member to use the "std" LS1 944 engine mounts in a 924 (i.e. cut off the factory 924 engine mounts like you have).

Thanks,
Delian

Hi, it's a steel cross member. I'm assuming it's not just a simple matter of booting the alloy 944 cross member into the 924, that's why modifying the steel 924 cross member is the solution.

Thanks,
Delian.

I will post photos of all sides and bottom, its to bad but the alum unit will not bolt in. I used a 44 unit to have all holes for motor mounts etc, duplicated on to the steel unit.

Post  kevin924kevin on Thu Dec 29, 2011 4:36 pm

Well today was a good day, the floor section and rear back seat area removed. I found a C6 six speed withh 11k on it complete with carrier and torque tube. ( in Canada) Hopefully will be shipped in the next few days. I will post photos on friday of the back section. tHIS IS GOING TO BE I THINK A VERY GOOD SWAP. Seats still fit really well. I will start to mock up cage and cross supports. Should be able to build and slide in to the car. Will keep you all posted.

New convert under way  - Page 4 Empty Another good day

Post  kevin924kevin on Fri Dec 30, 2011 8:33 pm

Hello, had another good day in the garage. Today i did the mock up roll hoop and bottom bracing to allow the C6. I made a form fitting wood template of the structure. I will use 1.5"x 1/8 " square tube for the cross section support and 1.5" x.95 roll for the hoop. I incorperated the structure right in to the factory cross member, with a new 13" opening,will be very strong. I ran the back brace down to the shock tower location, for now a 4 point will do, but will be 6 point at the end, for now the trany area is more important. As i thought i can build the structure out of the car and it fits in very nice. Did i mention you can keep the interior in when completed. I have taken a bunch of photos, i will down load on the weekend and post. U will see in the pics that the back floor area will come out flat all the way to the cage area.Should allow for real nice cargo area.(golf clubs). I think this design will be a very nice swap option.There may be enough area left on both sides of the trany, and in front of the axles to allow a couple of aluminum fuel cells linked, it would place more weight in the middle of the car, and lower to the ground.Seats seem to fit well (pics).I think i will run the sq tube at the hump down to the floor pan and back to the rocker area, to allow a point of mount for the split torsion tube, everything should fit very nice. I cant wait for the trans to arrive, I will have the hoop bent this coming week, sq tube in stock.Next on the menu, is to strip down the torsion unit and start the cutting, HOPING to remove 12" out of the center. trans is about 10" at that point. Will see.Keep you posted. Please feel free to share your thoughts on the structure, or anything else. QUESTION what is the gap (measurement) from the top of the porche TT to the underside of the tunnel? AGAIN THANKS to everyone that has supplied info/photos to allow this process to happen.

Great work. You should be able to slide that TT right back and get to the clutch easier.
